We all know the timeless adage : It's not what they play but how they play it."

Case in point here to a " T".

Great insights listed below from the many fans of this shorter show.

This is only the third time they played both Eyes and China Doll and it's wonderfully clear that these new songs reinvigorated the band, not that they really needed it at this time,

The Eyes of the World comes in at just about 20 minutes so the band fully explores it's subtle nuances and the more important melodic and thematic changes that make it a highlight of many shows this year.

They are also in no rush as they perform it in the slighty slower tempo then the song eventually would become by fall.

The China Doll is sublime.

They race to the finish with a joyous Sugar Magnolia then a full throttle Casey Jones, which is easily one of the top five of their celebrated careers.

Happy Trails.

Sweet! Excellent jams. There are parts that sound prettier than Bach.

A fragment, but what a fragment - that Jam out of Truckin' through the end of China Doll is simply amazing GD music. Fans of Phil will be right at home here. This one makes a great companion piece to the fragments available from 2/19.

Subject: Something about Feb of '73
This snippet shall surely satisfy all you Leshophiles out there, including the writer of this review. In fact, I'll be as bold to say that Phil never shined brighter than in Feb of '73 during his whole 30 career with the Grateful Dead. Pity we don't have access to the entire contents of this show, but the He's Gone-->China Doll run is some of the jammin' best 70-odd minutes the band ever played, and we should appreciate what we can get! This one is worthy of a place in anyone's collection.

This Eyes is the best. Sick. Disgustingly good. Wish the rest of the show was here but I'll give this a 5 star rating just for the jam out of Eyes of the World.

It was a beautiful China Doll, I wonder if the lyrics were originally in that order or if Jerry got them mixed up accidentally.

Holy crap this is a stellar show. They start out and don't stop. Sometimes these partials are all that's needed. Totally works for me.
